Measurement of blood pressure in the clinic is the most frequent method in the detection of hypertension. However, this method may at times lead to inappropriate treatment options due to the occurrence of white coat hypertension. Compared to the office blood pressure measurements, the effort test has been shown to be more valuable especially in showing the target organ damage. In addition to its value in evaluating effort capacity and ischemia, it is also important in delineating the blood pressure response. Further research is warranted to validate its value in the indirect evaluation of endothelial dysfunction in both normotensive and hypertensive individuals and to understand the relationship between the development of hypertension and blood pressure response.
